Google Unveils Infinix HOT 2, First Ever AndroidOne Device In Accra
Google has launched a brand new Android One smartphone, which, for the first time ever, is made for Africa. Called Infinix HOT 2, the handset is - like every other Android One device - affordable.
The new smartphone is already available in Nigeria and Ghana and would soon be released in Egypt, Morocco, Ivory Coast, and Kenya.
Speaking in Accra at the official launch, Marotta Camille, the PR and Online Manager for Infinix Mobility Limited, revealed that the phone is currently running stock Android 5.1.1 Lollipop adding that the Infinix HOT 2 will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow at some point.
The smartphone (pictured above) comes in five different colors: black, white, blue, red, and gold. The gold model has 2 GB of RAM, while the other four only have 1 GB. Other features include a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, a quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek processor, dual SIM support, 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory.
The Android One initiative is now almost 1 year old, and it's slowly expanding throughout the world (as the launch of the Infinix HOT 2 is proving).
Infinix has also partnered online leading marketplace Jumia.com.gh to make the devices more accessible to customers.
Mobile telecom giants MTN has also placed the handset on a special offer to customers.
